Endeavour to Offer Up to $110 Million in Notes
Endeavour International Corporation today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, up to $110 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2016 in a private placement to eligible purchasers. Endeavour also intends to grant to the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase up to an additional $15 million of notes to cover over-allotments, if any.
Endeavour intends to use substantially all of the net proceeds of this offering to fund its pending acquisition of acreage and related midstream assets in the Marcellus shale play. The remainder, if any, will be used for general corporate purposes, including funding a portion of Endeavour's 2011 capital program.
